OWH Sketch 242


Here's my take on the OWH sketch challenge #242 using snippets of red, white and blue papers and cardstock. I used a SU! mini heart punch for the strips of dsp, adding solid cardstock inside the negatives left by the punch. The sentiment is by Casual Fridays, while the embossing was done with a SU! ef. The twine is from Whisker Graphics in a red, white, & blue twist. With Veteran's day just around the corner, I guess I'm feeling a little patriotic with the red, white, & blue colors :)

I'll be taking this over to the Snippets Playground #150 as well.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day whatever you do!

Great minds think alike! I never allow myself to look before I make my card. It looks like we had the same idea! I even considered the tie across and decided not to. :) Love it!

I love making 'miss you' cards - who wouldn't love to hear that someone misses them & loves them?! The hearts on the banners are perfect :)
